The Orchard Naturist Park at Sutton offers attractive and peaceful surroundings in which to enjoy the naturist lifestyle. We offer an idyllic clothes-free experience for visitors at our friendly and private grounds at Sutton, the perfect place to experience the lifestyle if you are new to naturism. Our grounds comprise a mix of established trees and young orchard plants together with natives, set within rocky outcrops and schist tors providing a spectacular natural environment in which to unwind and shed stress.
We are located at Sutton, 5 km south of Middlemarch in Central Otago. Approximately 1 hour from Dunedin (via Mosgiel and Outram); 1 hour from Palmerston (via Macraes), and 45 minutes from Ranfurly. At Sutton, turn south off State Highway 87 into Bolton Street. Follow Bolton Street for 200 m, then turn left onto Sutton Street and we are just on the right (our sign is at the gate). Physical Address: 20 Sutton St, Sutton
GPS coordinates: 45.5661S; 170.1228E, and you can not miss us as we have an Orchard sign at the gate.
ONP also has a brochure so if you want something to download and read later, please click here.
We have a range of recreation options available on the grounds, as well as indoor and outdoor areas for those who wish to relax in the sun or the shade.
Middlemarch is the southern hub of the Otago Rail Trail, and we are close to Lake Sutton a pleasant Department of Conservation reserve, and to hiking trails in the Rock and Pillar Range. Relax those tired muscles in our pool or spa after you tackle the Bike Trail or one of those walks!
Originally we were based in Dunedin, but after the Abbotsford Landslide in the early 1970s we moved to our rural location in central Otago in 1974. We have frequent hot and sunny days in summer as well as some of the driest climates in the county ideal to enjoy the outdoors. We provide the ideal and affordable location to drop off and stay on your travels through central Otago.
